My Buddy List

Ultimatedude127 (My best friend, has stuck with me through thick and thin, but he doesn't come here anymore.)

Sonicrox14 (She just disappeared one day and only ever gets on once in a blue moon. What ever became of you and your Sonic Heroes 2 game, Shelly?)

Mighty the Hedgefox (He was formerly my best friend, but then he left this wiki for months and turned back up at another wiki under a new name. And then he left that one, and from what his brother told me, he left because he has no incentive to return to Wikia. While I'll admit that that killed me a little inside, I respect his decision and wish him the best of luck. I hope we meet again someday, Mighty.)

Super Guy 100 (He got banned on SFW and then he disappeared without a trace)

Ty Rezac (He's still active occasionally, but mostly gone from here)

GM Tails (What happened to you?)

Ability type


Eric the Hedgehog is a male artifical organic lifeform with no parents or siblings. When people hear that he is artificial, they think he is a robot. But he is not. This is true. He even took DNA tests, and X-Rays to prove it. He is 15.


One day, after Sonic, Shadow, and an innocent bystander fell into a DNA Combination Chamber, an organic hedgehog dubbed Eric the Hedgehog, was created.

Personal Life

After being created, he gained white gloves and White-Strapped shoes from Sonic, and a T-Shirt with the Awesome Smiley on it from a t-shirt salesman. (they said "MAKE YOURSELF DECENT MAN!!!") He then met Caitlynn (on a blind date), Rachel (at a bachleor party), Mighty the Hedgefox (while he was kicking Ro-Butt-nik butt), and Ricky (a cyan Wisp with ninja skills and powers whom Eric met at a meeting of the "Fast and Furious").

Metal Sonic

Later, a dying Metal Sonic upgraded himself back into Neo Metal Sonic, and empowered Tails Doll into the demonic, soul-eating, scythe-bearing Neo Tails Doll. When Metal saw Eric, he confused him for Sonic and Shadow. He changed the machine that brought Eric into the world into an organic life form creator that needed no DNA samples to make things. He used it to make false Repo Men and Gunmen to attack Eric. Eric warded them off. Metal now angry sent Tails Doll to suck out Eric's soul, which backfired. Neo Metal Sonic now seething with rage used his robotic powers and Tails Doll's demonic powers to cause the Robotic Apocalypse!

The Robotic Apocalypse Cometh

Eric noticed dark clouds swirling in the sky and jumped outta his shoes! He realized only Neo Metal Sonic could be responible for "dis crap". When Eric approached Neo Metal Sonic, Metal used his powers to cause the skies to send down a giant serpent! Eric, realizing he was still part Sonic and Shadow, called them and then, with the 7 Chaos Emeralds, they went super and killed the serpent. Neo Metal Sonic then used all of his powers to turn back into Metal Overlord. Of course, he was still defeated by the 3. After the battle, Metal Sonic was seen missing an arm and a leg. He was also leaking battery fluid. His last words were:"I... FAILED... AGAIN...". His eyes then dimmed. He Died. RIP Metal Sonic. Eric was also hurt. He passed out.

After The Robotic Apocalypse

Eric was later hospitalized and released after 2 weeks. He bought a meat-eating Pooka Plant from "Namco Con 2009". (Pooka Plants were meat-eating plants that appeared in the Namco game "Pac-Man World 2".)

Current activities

File:Reformed Roller.png
He looks different doesn't he?
Eric has now found "The Lightning Staff", and reformed the AOSTH version of Roller.

The Future...

Eric one day entered a time warp and saw the future. Metal Eric has been killed, Eric is married to his girlfriend Caitlynn, Sonic is married to Amy with a son, Sonic Jr, Mighty is 1 of "Mobius' National Heroes", Warp has settled down, G.U.N has been terminated, and Rachel is now hypnotized into being the slave of a new menace... Cire the Hoghedge! Eric's evil double from Moebius has now become a dictator of South Island and West Side Island. Eric and Sonic's families however, now live on the safe haven of Angel Island, up high and surrounded by a barrier of severe thunderstorms that Cire can't penetrate or even navigate thru for that matter. Only Sonic and co. can get thru, with the use of a pendant with a certain emerald that belongs to a certain Mobigyptian that was an ancestor of Sonic.

The Glitch Zone

One day, Eric found an entrance to the Glitch Zone. (a glitch-filled zone made from the result of a failed project with a Sega Genesis) Anyways, he entered and saw how crazy and warped it was. However, he met Ashura and Wechnia, whom Eric became friends with. But just when Eric began to like the Glitch Zone, Nazo arose and began to fight Eric, Ashura, and Wechnia. They won though. Eric then said he had to leave. But when he left, Ashura and Wechnia followed him, wishing to stay with Eric. He agreed that they could stay.

Do Eric's Pockets have access to Hammerspace?

Eric has been known by Ricky to pull a Sega Dreamcast from his pants pockets. This would hint in that Eric's pants pockets have access to a storage dimension sometimes known as "hammerspace". A group of floppy disks have been found in the pockets and they are labeled:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Godzilla Movies
  • Milton Fludgecow Prank Calls
  • Internet Memes
  • Unpaid Bills (Eric you'd best pay those later! :D )
  • Subliminal Stimuli (subliminal messages)
  • Owl City-Ocean Eyes
  • My Neighbor Totoro
  • Spirited Away
  • Ponyo On the Cliff By the Sea
  • Pong
